From Ms. Keeshia Carter: I would like to nominate Mr. Lynorris "Pete" Thomas for the Bobcat Coin of Distinction! As an alumnus of Dooly County Schools, Mr. Thomas provides landscaping services for Dooly County Schools and donates his time and energy to the faculty, staff, and students of DCSS. Mr. Thomas has donated countless hours and items, including but not limited to cook ware, meat, and pressure washing services to the Bobcat Marching Cats! He continues to remain humble and committed to the Dooly County community and the Dooly County School System. From Dr. Barbara Bryant: Mr. Thomas does an outstanding job in maintaining the campuses in our district. However, we were pleasantly surprised Monday morning when we arrived at PREP and noticed the beautiful landscape at PREP Academy. Mr. Thomas donated his personal funds to purchase red mulch to improve the appearance of PREP Academy.

Thank you for your support in these efforts to keep everyone safe.
